Luostarinmaki Handicrafts Museum features craftworks from pre-industrial times in an 18th-century open-air museum. When the Great Fire of 1827 destroyed 75 percent of the town, this area remained unharmed. Today you can wander through wooden homes decorated by colorful doors, windows, and chimneys. Note the grass on the roofs of some, while others feature barns and wooden stairs that lead to small attics. Inside the houses, you'll see old tools, furniture, and textiles. Throughout the site, artisans produce merchandise that you can purchase. To visit Luostarinmaki Handicrafts Museum and other attractions in Turku, use our Turku trip maker website .
Luostarinmaki Handicrafts Museum Reviews
Extreme Musealisierung mit dem Schaustellern, dennoch sehr interessant. Das historische Arbeiterviertel ist gut erhalten und so gut wie jedes Gebäude besuchbar. Auch mit Kindern sehr zu empfehlen! more »Extreme Musealisation with the Carnies, but very interesting. The historic working class neighbourhood is well preserved and as good as any building open to the public. To recommend very well with children!
Luostarimäen Käsityöläismuseo on oiva tapa kokea tuulahdus menneestä ajasta. Kohde sopii hyvin lapsille noin 6-vuotiaasta ylöspäin. Oppaat kertovat mieleenpainuvia pikku tarinoita.

Guides tell the memorable little stories. There is also a soma, a coffee shop/Café.
Lovely museum near the center of Turku. You can see very old and typical Finnish houses, some old handcraft. In some of the room, you can find people dressed in costume that can answer your questions or show you how some craft was done. Only weekness of the place, is that, for what I understand, it is completely open only in summer or during weekends. So if you visit in any other periods, some of the places would be closed and there will be only a few actors. Staff was nice and welcoming, the price is around 7€, so it is worth the price.
Joaaa. I was a bit disappointed, even though the place was looking nice and the houses as well as the old stuff looked fantastic. The problem was, that even though we asked whether all houses were open, lots of them have actually been unter reconstuction during summer.
